Fulbright Program – Research/Study Abroad

Goal: "To increase mutual understanding between people of the U.S. and people of other countries through exchange." The other day I went to listen to a Fulbright Scholarship presentation and it really grabbed my attention. Unfortunately, to apply I would have to be a US citizen, so I am out, but I thought there might be some people out there...

Knocking off two new places from my bucket list…

Welcome to the gorgeous Zion and Bryce Canyons! Echo, Ben and I left to visit Zion Friday morning. Originally we were going to leave on Thursday but I came down with a cold on Wednesday and had a fever so decided to take Thursday slow.

Become more and grow as a person: spend money on experiences, instead of things…

I truly believe that I am who I am because I got a chance to travel and see more of the world. Obviously, sport had a lot to do with shaping my personality, but seeing other cultures, meeting people with different backgrounds changes our way of thinking and how we look at things forever. I never want to stop experiencing,...

"One day you will wake up and there won't be any more time to do the things you have always wanted. Do them now." - Paulo Coelho Well...that was a nice and depressing way to start this blog post. You are welcome! I guess what I am trying to say is that most people (I really don't wanna put this on everyone,...

Let’s tour The Ryman Auditorium, the mother church of country music…

When I told people that Ben, Echo and I are about to go and check out Nashville, I received a "what did you just say?!" look from most of them...can't even blame them...neither Ben nor I am big fans of country music, but luckily we are both interested in seeing new places and learning about history. I think that even...

Tourists’ guide to tipping

Eeek...wrong tipping can cause some uncomfortable conversations and can result in looks that burn a hole in the back of your head...especially in foreign countries where you don't know what you are doing...and trust me you don't wanna piss off some crazy Hungarian taxi drivers :) Well...  It is always nice to know what the rules and expectations are in the...

Never forget to look up

About a month ago I saw a post on dksmithphotography (check out his blog, I love his photos) in which the title said: "...keep looking up...". It made me think and realize something important. I always look down when I walk. Why is that? I look at my shoes, I look at my phone, on better days I look around at...

My trip to California in Pictures

Have you ever seen the movie "The Holiday"? Well, I feel like I have been living it a little. My friend had to go back to Hungary for a couple weeks so we made a deal that I would come to California to house and job sit for her. I left Monday afternoon, my first flight was out of this cute...

Horseshoe Bend, AZ

“Traveling – it leaves you speechless, then turns you into a storyteller.” – Ibn Battuta I had to start this blog post with this quote about Horseshoe Bend  because this is exactly how I felt, arriving to this wonderful site.
